Updates Made to MRO Draft RFQ

Hello everyone,

The MRO Team has made several improvements to the draft RFQ that will be released, in final form, late July / early August.  The team will not release another draft RFQ or market basket prior to that date. Improvements are as follows:

MRO Categories have been reduced from four* to three:

    Hardware

    Tools and Tool Cabinets

    Paints and Finishes

(*The previous category of Portable Heating and Cooling was combined with Hardware.  As Hardware encompasses portable heating and cooling products, having a separate category was duplicative.)

The number of BPAs and set-asides for each category was adjusted to reflect;

    Hardware - 11 BPAs (3 unrestricted, 8 set-aside for small business)

    Tools and Tool Cabinets 6 BPAs (2 unrestricted, 4 set-aside for small business)

    Paints and Adhesives 6 BPAs (2 unrestricted, 4 set-aside for small business)

No changes were made to the list of market basket items. 

Thank you,

GSA’s MRO Team
